Company Background / History

Innovation and tradition glass products for the highest quality demands

Schäfer Glas GmbH is a solid, medium-sized family business, which is today managed in the third generation by Renate Schäfer with great commitment, a sense of tradition and a high level of professional competence.

In the 1920s, Afra Schäfer founded the glass processing company "Schäfer Glas" in the Bohemian town of Gablonz, which is now part of the Czech Republic. After the expulsion from the Sudetenland, the Schäfer family found a new home in Kaufbeuren-Neugablonz. In 1960, Herbert Schäfer, the second generation, succeeded in reviving the business founded by his mother and expanding it into a modern and sustainable company.

Within a short time, today's Schäfer Glas GmbH established itself as an efficient and globally sought-after producer of high-quality and durable products made of glass.

Since 1994, Renate Schäfer has continued this success story with joy and high standards in order to handle the many special requests and international orders to the highest customer satisfaction.
In every single glass object we produce, the decades of experience in the production of articles made of the material glass becomes visible and touchable.
